Don’t worry, you can still have your mask off as long as you have a pack of smokes out.



Time to start smoking!

I heard the new virus rules in Nevada are 25% casino capacity
How do they judge?
I just walked into the Riverside Casino in Laughlin 30 min ago
The entrance I walked in, nobody.
Just walked in
Grocery stores are more secure with generally somebody checking for masks

I honestly think these edicts are just “feel good” words that offer no logical way to enforce. The locals casinos in Vegas have multiple entrances, bowling alleys attached, restaurants with exterior entrances emptying onto casino floor, hotel lobby’s on the casino floor, theaters, etc, etc.

If you see someone actually counting....I’d be amazed.

Grocery stores have gone to one entrance in, one entrance out. They have some means and method of counting.

I was a little concerned moving to NV for a week or longer due to new virus restrictions
Walked around the Riverside and the Aquarius in Laughlin.
Except for masks, seems business as usual.
Lots of food options :-)

Casinos here in MN/WI/IA have also gone to one entrance here, one out. (two, I guess, if you count the hall from the hotel, which is also now manned.) Even the very large properties like Mystic Lake and the architecturally complex properties like Grand Hinckley and Treasure Island are down to one entrance. That means that only a portion of the parking lot(s) makes any sense to use, which probably has at least a small deterring effect with respect to the capacity limits. Like, at Grand, it'd be a 10ish minute walk from the south parking lot to the west-facing door that is open. If I couldn't park in the west lot, I'd at least consider visiting Black Bear or St. Croix Danbury instead of parking on the "wrong" side of Grand. In each case, there is a temperature check at the door along with a security guard handing out masks and tracking the entries/exits to track occupancy. I don't know how they track the net-count between the parking lot door and the door leading to the hotel.

I'm sure all of that is harder in Vegas. How do Bally's and Paris handle their shared retail space? Same with Wynncore, Venetian, etc. Plus there are the places where entrances don't actually have working doors at all, like downtown. I guess I did assume that the locals casinos that are open were doing things the same way as the similarly sized casinos here in the midwest. But maybe that's not the case - maybe that would put them at even more of a disadvantage over the strip and downtown.
